The Democratic People's Republic of Korea revealed on Thursday that top leader Kim Jong-un's younger sister, Kim Yo-jong, holds the title of a senior party official, confirming her rise through the ranks as a potential key aide to the young leader.

Kim Yo-jong, believed to be 26, made her first public appearance during the funeral of then-leader Kim Jong-il in December 2011.

Since then, she has occasionally been seen accompanying her brother to political events and on his "field guidance trips", but without any specific title attached to her name.
